UAE set to roll out world’s 1st moral education exam

The United Arab Emirates is set to roll out a standardised test to assess moral education nationwide, making it the first country to quantify how schools fare in shaping students’ values.

Senior officials behind the UAE Moral Education Programme introduced the Moral Education Standardised Assessment (Mesa) during the Middle East and Africa Association of Test Publishers (MEA-ATP) conference, which was held in Abu Dhabi from January 28 to 30.

Mesa will be implemented as a trial in around 70 schools in the UAE, covering 10,000 students from Grades 3,5,7 and 9. Pupils will be taking the computer-based test that combines knowledge recall and situational judgement questions.
